And, I thought we were thin...New Orleans only has two bench players?!

I'm surprised that Mason's three point shooting isn't improving this far into the season.

Has to be a record for most shot clock violations forced against non conference opponents.

Butler keeps improving every game. He is going to be big for us if he can keep playing at a high level.

Butler must play. We are better when he is on the floor

Mayer apparently in the dog house after firing up a couple of ill advised shots in the first half. Several substitutions in this blowout but no Mayer.
DanaDane

YES! We get the standard John Morris grandson feature. The streak continues!

Kegler looking more like the preseason Kegler I heard about. Nice game for him.
